Ron and Ingrid were over for their annual fishing trip to Ireland and once again stayed with Kevin and Jane at Melview fishing Lodge in Longford, Kevin said the weather was not in their favour as most of the week see high winds and rain. The week produced pike to around 80 cm but the best was saved for last, while out with Kevin on a guided day Ron managed to beat his Irish personal best of 106 cm by landing a pike of 107 cm.

Kevin said it was a tough week for them weather wise but they still fished on regardless of what weather was thrown at them and in the end paid off, see you again next year.
